I’m having withdrawals from Pam’s class…sad to say it’s over.

The last lessons were about depicting emotion using color contrast.  I set out to create an unusual bird, mysterious or exotic, in a dark garden.   Not convinced that I was successful in the lesson, but it certainly is an odd bird in an odd quilt.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. I like the quilt. You were making something for yourself and had very personal imagery. You didn’t want it to be like everyone’s else’s quilt. If you are not sure about how it turned out put it away for a while. Come back with different eyes. I am sure that you will think better about it later.
